Tides are caused by gravitational forces pulling on the earth's surface from the moon and the sun, although lunar forces have more effect because of the moon's proximity to the earth. While these forces pull on all the earth's surface, only the flexible ocean yields to the force. The ocean forms a bulge on the side of the planet facing the moon, while the earth's centripetal force forms another bulge on the opposite side of the planet. These bulges represent the high tides, and this explains why the tides rise and fall twice a day.

The phases of the moon affect tides significantly. During a new moon, when the moon and sun are on the same side of the planet, the solar and lunar forces pull in the same direction, creating the strongest force and hence a bigger "water bulge," or a higher tide. Likewise, during a full moon, when the moon is on the opposite side of the earth from the sun, the forces pull from opposite ends, also creating the strongest force. So, both full and new moons create the greatest tidal range and movement, with higher highs and lower lows. These are called "spring tides"(this is not a reference to the season). Spring tides typically start three days before the full or new moon and last for three days afterwards. At their strongest, spring tides cause water levels lower than the normal (mean) reference point for tidal measurements, and thus they may appear in a tide table with a minus sign. Many anglers even call them "minus tides."

During the two quarter moon phases each month, the lunar and solar forces are pulling at a right angle to each other, canceling each other out to a certain extent and creating a smaller water bulge. These quarter moon tides are known as "neap tides" and have a much smaller range (lower highs and higher lows).

Los términos de la marea


Marea: movimiento periódico y alternativo de ascenso y descenso de las aguas del mar a causa de la atracción del sol y la luna.

Marea viva: fase de grandes mareas que se produce cuando el Sol y la Luna se hallan en línea recta con la Tierra (en luna nueva o luna llena).

Marea muerta: fase de pequeñas mareas que se produce cuando el Sol y la Luna forma un ángulo recto con la Tierra (en cuarto creciente o cuarto menguante).

Pleamar: nivel superior de la marea.

Bajamar: nivel inferior de la marea.

tide pool = charco de marea

Tide Pooling

Call ahead to find out when the tide is low then head to one of the rocky shores where broad shelves reach out into the water and reveal sea urchins, star fish, tiny crabs and rocks covered with mussels and barnacles among a wide variety of sea life suddenly visible.

My first guide to these alien worlds was my mother, Dr. Marilyn Harlin, now a marine biology professor at the University of Rhode Island. "Tide pools make you live in the present," she says by way of partially explaining her love of exploring them. "Because they're exposed so briefly, you have to observe them on their own terms. In return, you get to visit environments you'd otherwise have to wear scuba gear to witness."
